South Korea Eyes Indonesia's Green Infrastructure Projects
Public Works and Housing Minister Basuki Hadimuljono signed a Joint Statement on the Green Transition Initiative with South Korean Minister of Environment Han Wha Jin during the G20 Summit 2022 in Bali. The signing is a follow-up to the memorandum of understanding on green infrastructure development signed on March 15 in Labuan Bajo. "We're aware that we can't face climate change alone," Basuki said on Monday.
Basuki explained that the project would focus on water resources management and clean water supply, the construction of energy-efficient buildings and eco-smart cities, as well as the creation of the infrastructure needed for climate change mitigation. He also revealed that South Korea would also participate in building a clean water supply system in the Nusantara capital city. "The plan is to start the construction in 2024, but we hope to accelerate the preparation of the technical plan so that it can be built in 2023," he said.
